Over time, your skin loses its fresh, firm quality, develops areas of hyperpigmentation, and begins to form wrinkles and creases. Morpheus8 (by aesthetic technology leader InMode) is a groundbreaking radiofrequency microneedling treatment system for skin resurfacing and tightening. Acclaimed NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Darren Smith has adopted this technology for full-body rejuvenation.

Not all resurfacing treatments are equal in the results that can be achieved. Dr. Darren Smith has dedicated his professional career to staying abreast with the latest developments in aesthetics and offers advanced skin resurfacing treatments with the Morpheus8 system. This system achieves results with radiofrequency (RF) energy technology combined with microneedling, which heats the deep layers of the skin to stimulate natural regeneration and rejuvenation. Many of the changes associated with aging skin like laxity and a drooping appearance are caused by a loss of skin elasticity. Dr. Smith uses Morpheus8 to directly combat these changes by actually generating increased collagen formation (“collagen induction therapy”).

Non-invasive, non-surgical facial rejuvenation: The benefits of Morpheus8

As skin rejuvenation with the Morpheus8 system is non-surgical and non-invasive, you can enhance your look without worries about incisions, scars, anesthesia, or a long recovery time. You can address a range of skin problems in one treatment, with many benefits:

  • Smooths deep wrinkles and lines
  • Smooths acne scars
  • Helps avoid breakouts of cystic acne
  • Safe for all skin tones
  • Restores skin quality by triggering natural collagen production
  • Evens skin tone

Who is the best candidate for skin resurfacing and tightening?

If you have any of the following skin problems, you are likely a candidate for this non-surgical treatment:

  • Mild sagging on face and neck, jowls
  • Acne scars
  • Fatty deposits on face and neck
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Active acne
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven skin texture

What is the treatment like to experience?

Most people who undergo this revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment find it easy to experience. Prior to your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin, so you are comfortable. You will feel a mild warming from the RF energy, and only a mild sensation from the microneedling. Dr. Smith recommends a series of three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to see maximal results.

What is the recovery time?

You may experience reddened skin that typically is hard to notice by one day after treatment. Pinpoint bleeding immediately treatment is normal and rapidly resolves. Plan on approximately one day before it is nearly impossible to tell you have had anything done.
